MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Creep’ Is Incredibly Unsettling

Film: Creep
Starring: Patrick Brice, Mark Duplass
Directed By: Patrick Brice

I have never seen a found footage film quite like Creep, but I always wanted to. It’s a combination of horror, drama, and comedy that is so tightly wound that you never know what to expect from one moment to the next. Credit for this is owed as much to the script as it is to the cast, which consists of just two people, and even though I know it’s still a bit early in 2015 to say such things, I must admit I walked away from Patrick …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘We Are Still Here’ Is Too Messy To Be Memorable

Film: We Are Still Here
Starring: Barbara Crampton, Andrew Sensenig
Directed by: Ted Geoghegan

There is a house in rural New England that feeds on people, and every thirty years it grows hungry for a new family. We Are Still Here tells the tale of the latest residents to call the house their own, and the fight for survival they will soon begin.

It’s winter when We Are Still Here begins, and Anne and Paul Sacchetti are busy moving their belongings into their new home. The house is old and creaky, lying just on the edge of a typical farming …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Old 37′ Will Make You Second Guess Calling 9-1-1

Film: Old 37
Starring: Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley
Genre: Horror

Everyone knows who to call when roadside emergencies occur, but what if your worst nightmare was the person, or people, who responded to your cries for help? That idea serves as the central premise for Old 37, which swerves from a bloody death fest to a chilling collection of incredibly unnerving sequences and back again with ease.…

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Insidious: Chapter 3′ Is Worth The Price Of Admission

Film: Insidious: Chapter 3
Starring: Stepfanie Scott, Lin Shaye
Directed By: Leigh Whannell

Coming off a near-perfect sequel, the third Insidious film finds scares and plenty of story in new, yet familiar territory.

I assumed the second chapter of Insidious said all that needed to be said, but Chapter 3 has proven me wrong. Set years before the haunting of the Lambert’s home, the film follows a young woman (Stefanie Scott) who desperately wants to reconnect with her deceased mother, and the father (Dermot Mulroney) who is struggling to strengthen their strained relationship. It also reintroduces Elise (Lin Shaye), and …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Human Centipede: Final Sequence’ Flat-Out Sucks

Film: The Human Centipede: Final Sequence
Starring: Dieter Laser, Laurence R Harvey, Eric Roberts, Bree Olson
Directed by: Tom Six

Tom Six has somehow managed to ruin the fun of body horror and exploitation in just three films. If I wasn’t so pissed about that fact I might applaud him, but then again probably not as I have unfortunately sat through each of his three increasingly unwatchable feature-length creations.

The Human Centipede: Final Sequence serves as the final chapter of Tom Six’s medically impossible trilogy of extreme body modification and the monsters who carry it out. The film stars Dieter …

Poltergeist-2015-review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Poltergeist’ Is A Reboot Nightmare

Film: Poltergeist
Starring: Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt
Directed by: Gil Kenan

Thirty-three years after Tobe Hooper sent chills down the spines of audience members everywhere with his unique and thrilling Poltergeist film, a modern reboot has appeared with absolutely nothing new to share.

Directed by Gil Kenan, the 2015 version of Poltergeist borrows its core story from the original title, then attempts to twist the frame just enough with socioeconomic commentary to make things feel a bit more timely. A father, played admirably by Sam Rockwell, moves his disgruntled family into a foreclosure-hit neighbourhood after being laid off from his …

First ‘Cooties’ Trailer Is All About Killing (Zombie) Kids

There is nothing we love more at UTG than a great horror-comedy, and this fall Cooties looks like it could be something special.

Starring a cast of indie favorites, including Rainn Wilson, Elijah Wood, and Alison Pill, Cooties finds a group of elementary school employees fighting for their lives against a ravenous pack of underage monsters. It seems a virus has begun to spread, but it only strikes those who have yet to go through puberty, so our protagonists will have to fight off the hungry horde if they want to make it through the night. You can view the …

Latest ‘Human Centipede 3′ Trailer Showcases The Plot

The Human Centipede 3 arrives in theaters and on VOD later this month, but today we have a new trailer for the film that is sure to make your skin crawl.

Set in the most violent prison in America, The Human Centipede 3 finds franchise stars Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey returning in new roles, but with (basically) the same goal in mind. You see, both Laser and Harvey have become so fed up with the way their prison operates that they have decided to go to extreme measures to ensure no further wrongdoing occurs, and those measures just …

ALL HOPE IS LOST: ‘Unfriended’ Is Getting A Sequel

Don’t say we never tried to warn you.

According to our pals at Bloody-Disgusting, Universal Pictures has already begun work on a sequel to the recently-released horror film Unfriended. In fact, the site claims that the as-of-yet untitled sequel is already being scripted by Nelson Greaves, who wrote the first film that was produced by Timur Bekmambetov. No release date has been set, but I don’t think a summer or fall 2016 release is out of the question.

Unfriended opened in the middle of April and has since accumulated $25 million at the US box office. That …

New Trailer For ‘The Visit’ May Make You Rethink Staying With Your Grandparents

Given some missteps within his directing mystique (looking at you, The Happening), M. Night Shyamalan has thrown his hat into the found footage ring with The Visit. The story revolves around a young brother and sister sent to stay with their grandparents at their Pennsylvania farm, only for sinister things to start occurring. Something is not quite right with grandma and grandpa, especially noted with the Hansel and Gretel-esque nod at the end of the trailer.

The Visit opens in theaters in September. Time will tell if Shyamalan can get back to the fresh stories of The

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Unfriended’ Is Not Worth The Price Of Admission

Film: Unfriended
Starring: Heather Sossaman, Matthew Bohrer
Directed by: Levan Gabriadze

Serving as the first ‘all on-screen’ horror film to open in thousands of theaters nationwide, Unfriended boasts a relatively fresh gimmick and almost nothing else.

Remember that long period of silence at the beginning of Wall-E? Replace the colorful animation, comedy, and adorable robots with the computer screen of a high school-aged girl named Blaire who likes to watch videos online without making them full screen and you pretty much have the opening fifteen minutes of Unfriended.…

‘Scream’ Is Now A TV Show & It Does Not Look Good

“You can’t do a slasher movie as a TV series.”

It’s as if the characters in Scream — the official TV series based on Wes Craven’s hit film that is allegedly an over-the-top remake of the original film, stretched to ten hours in length — want you to hate them. The series’ first promos, which premiered Sunday night during the MTV Movie Awards, offered a taste of the so-called carnage and terror that lies in store across three incredibly short montages. You can view all three clips below.

You will no doubt notice Bella Thorn, who appears in the network’s …
